I have a few generations of the gun vault gun safes and I have to admit that it may be time to toss a few of them. Technology in the gun industry has been greatly advancing and gun safes are no different. I believe that there is a 99.9% probability that you do not ever have to leave an unlocked fiearms in your home for defensive reasons. Most reasons to lock up your firearms is to prevent theft so get that in your head if you aren’t locking up even your hunting rifles. With many of us carrying firearms daily, you have to realize that the way gun safes are being designed today, that the older styles wear out batteries faster and in my experiences have some reliability issues.
I have good experiences with all of the gun vault gun safes that I have purchased in the last 3 yrs. There was apparently and issue with some of the first biometric safes, but the issue has been resolved. If you have kids in the house or live in a home where there is a lot of traffic, these safes can be bolted to areas that are not easy to find and most criminals aren’t going to take their time during a robbery. My advice is to not put them in the obvious areas, but make sure you can still easily open and close the safe. The gun vault microvault can easily fit into your car and be used for travelling or be used in an even more stealthy manor in your closet or near your bed.
